Flatpak steam dont open

im having issue with steam in a game since the last steam update

im trying to install the flatpak version following these instructions
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Steam

but when i run flatpak run com.valvesoftware.Steam via the terminal

i got this

flatpak run com.valvesoftware.Steam
WARNING:root:Bad item "home" found in filesystem overrides
WARNING:root:Bad item "host" found in filesystem overrides

im probably dump and messed up some where since i did install the flatpak version of discord before having to restore a snapshot due to a failure on my part.

if i run flatpak --user uninstall flathub com.valvesoftware.Steam
i also have this message

Warning: flathub is not installed

Please read

Let me preface this by saying that I do not use flatpak, so I try to go by logic...
This

Reminds me of this in the wiki article:

Steam installed via Flatpak is not able to access your home directory and overriding this will cause Steam to not run because it is not safe. However, you can freely add directories outside the home directory. If you want to add an external library, run the following command to add it:

So you may want to start checking your overrides.

i did try override comman even

flatpak override --filesystem=/mnt/doomtest/ com.valvesoftware.Steam

fail to work

games are on a secondary drive

tried

flatpak override --user --filesystem=/mnt/doomtest/SteamLibrary/ com.valvesoftware.Steam

apparently im to dump to understand the command

Why are you running steam as a flatpak?

Maybe try to check in your overrides stored in ~/.local/share/flatpak/overrides/ if there is anything related to home (quite frankly I've no idea how this might look like).
And maybe try to reset them as described here:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Flatpak#Override_sandbox_permissions_of_applications

deleted files in this folder and it worked

thx

edit : removed flatseal , just running it make steam unable to open
